Get rid of the trac bars. Both of 'em. There are tons of post on doing this on this forum. Best thing I ever did for the ride on my '89.

Hey guys, there is NO SUCH THING as RPMS. There is NO "S" in RPM.
A little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but not nearly as much as ignorance.

3 in springs SOA is more like 8+ inches of lift. What does your steering look like? When you say it rides rough, is a lot of that coming in the form of bump steer? Take a picture of your front end.

Edit: Last week you were asking about a drop pitman arm fixing bump steer.

This is the correct advice. All of the suggestions in this thread will help a bit, and none of them are bad advice, but your rough ride / bump steer problem is due to stock steering on a large SOA lift.

It just rode better. As for what both have...I can list what I know but I don't know their rigs inside out. I just know the RC felt better and smoother if that makes sense. Granted RC may give out quicker but as my buddy put it, everything is just temporary until SOA so he did everything cheap but he's super happy with it. These are daily drivers and trail rigs, not rock crawlers.
